Sometimes the only way for people to learn how to appreciate their circumstances is to be inadvertently placed in a situation that endangers not only their morals, but also their life. That’s certainly the case for actor Evan Marsh’s character of Joel in the horror comedy, ‘Vicious Fun,’ after he sets out to further his career. But he ultimately ends up having to fight for his ethics and physical survival as he’s forced to spend time his new ruthless peers.

The movie was written by James Villeneuve (‘The Ticket’) and directed and produced by Cody Calahan (‘Antisocial,’ ‘The Oak Room’). In addition to Marsh, ‘Vicious Fun’ also stars Amber Goldfarb (‘Sex/Life’), Ari Millen (‘Orphan Black’), Julian Richings (‘Man of Steel’), Robert Maillet (‘Sherlock Holmes’) and David Koechner (‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy‘).

RLJE Films is releasing ‘Vicious Fun’ on VOD, Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, April 5. The Blu-ray will be available for an SRP of $28.96, and the DVD will be available for an SRP of $27.97.
